Are all his books this good ?!?!

I'm listening to the audio right now and it has really caught my interest. Of course, it helps that the reader (Ed Sala) is excellent. My husband was laughing at me last night because I was carrying around an old boom box so I can listen while I was cooking, cleaning, etc.

He is awesome. They're all great. I loved The Woods and Tell No One was a close second.

I concur, Myron and Win are two of my favorite characters.  The books are tightly paced and well written, tense mystery/thrillers that still have the capacity to make you laugh (well at least they make ME laugh).  I have one of is non Myron books on its way to me, and I am hoping it is just as good.  Everyone assures me that it will be.

I have not read any of the Myron Bolitor series, but I have read most of the standalones and yes, for the most part they are all that good!  I particularly enjoyed The Innocent and Gone for Good.  The only one I didn't care much for was Hold Tight.  That being said, Hold Tight was still heads above most thrillers... it is just that most of Harlen Coben's books are so good that I hold his work to a higher standard.  :-)

So happy I've found another writer to become obsessed about :-)
